RWC 2019 team and stadium ticket pack applications open

England fans will be able to apply for tickets to follow the team at Rugby World Cup 2019 in Japan with the global ticket application window for team and stadium packs open today (27 January).

Japan 2019 is Asia's first Rugby World Cup and the window for applications begins at 10:00 (Japan time, GMT +9) and is open until 23:59 (Japan time) on 12 February. It will operate as a ballot so all applications within the window will have equal opportunity.

Mastercard, as a Worldwide Partner of Rugby World Cup 2019, is offering those who apply for tickets using their Mastercard the chance to receive a double entry in the ticketing ballot for the opportunity to secure tickets to each of the matches they apply for.
